With the debut of his first project, trumpet and flugelhorn player Ian Carey, along with his quintet, made an impressive statement for new jazz artists creating music of their own. This tradition continues with the new project, Roads & Codes. Carey wrote all but one of the songs on this release. The writing and the performances are fresh and engaging, swinging and serene. Joining Carey is a talented lineup, which includes, Evan Francis and Kasey Knudsen on saxophones,  Fred Randolph on bass, Jon Arkin on drums and Adam Shulman on piano. The band sounds great together and makes this another thoroughly rich musical experience.
